West Virginia Needs Help
The Mountaineers need help to win the Big East as they not only need to win this game on Friday they need Connecticut to lose one of their last two games. The Mountaineers have played excellent defense this season as they are 4th in the country but they have not gotten much offense. When West Virginia is able to win it is almost always a low scoring game.
Pittsburgh 6-4 SU, 5-3-2 ATS
The Panthers are one of those teams that are very tough to figure out at Sbgglobal. They are capable of winning as they did at South Florida last week but they do not have a potent offense and rarely blow teams out. The Panthers have a good defense and should be able to shut down a very poor West Virginia offense.
